2009 Lapathon

Due to some monies not yet being returned we have not been able to hand out prizes. Could all swimmers please ensure all their money is returned to the treasurer as soon as possible!

Prizes will be handed out at the final club night of the season which is scheduled to be held on Thursday 19th March.

Presentation Night – we need volunteers!

At this stage only one person has volunteered to be part of our presentation night subcommittee. As the coaches are our committee and the end of season is frantic for them– please consider being part of this sub committee to ensure that this event can be held. Please phone Phillipa if you can help out.

End of Season Awards

For those swimmers and parents wanting to know how the end of season trophies are awarded – before presentation night – please take a look at our club website and view last season’s Annual Report – the back pages.

These awards are designed to reward improvement, not just the fastest swimmers. Feel free to discuss with a committee member any questions you may have about the calculations completed to get these results.
